Unspeakable Cults


 Small victories are but a cruel jest played upon those whose durance offers no true escape.  Time and time again, The Malefactor renews the punishments visited upon those few who speak against his despotism, for enlightened though it may be, that enlightenment bestows the wisdom of nihil and the embrace of the void.  No mortal knowledge is this, for it conjures torments which defy the human imagination.

Torments from 1987 and 2001 issue forth this night... 

Behold the Malefactor's unholy presence here.

Iced Earth Wolf Horror Show Century The band's finest post-Stormrider album and another personal favorite.
Falconer Lord of the Blacksmiths Falconer Metal Blade Ultimate folkish power metal cheese from the band's masterful 2001 debut. That's right, you can't f**k with this. OH YEAH.

Brodequin Bronze Bowl Festival of Death Unmatched Brutality One of the greatest brutal death metal albums of all time and a treasure of morbid riffage, buried under a layer of grime. One of the finest releases of 2001, concluding our tour.

Fleshtized Here Among Thorns Here Among Thorns Mighty Music 2001 powerhouse and the sole full-length from this band, members of which have gone on to Chaos Inception. Official do-over pick for my barely-finished 2001 set!
